You will show me the path of life.
In your presence is fullness of joy.
In your right hand there are pleasures forever more
God knows the inner heart of each person. Do we do good works out of legalism or out of love? Do we focus so hard on what needs to be done that we do not see the heart of the Lord. Is it about looking good or is it about humility, a steadfast heart and ultimately living in our Fathers love and will?
Jesus addressed these human thought processes. The story of Martha and Mary is an excellent example of doing rather then being with God. Jesus took on the Pharisee leaders of his day for not being relevant, real and relational.
The fields are ripe and full now. Souls are hungry for a thriving life with God. We have the opportunity to walk in God’s presence and hear well done good and faithful servant. Let us run this race with persistence and in love.
